How to Make a Star Model Vest
With its unique shape and intricate design, it’s sure to turn heads wherever you go. Best of all, it’s easy to make with just a few materials and some basic sewing skills. Here’s how to get started:
- 2 yards of fabric
- Measuring tape
- Sewing machine
- Sewing pins
Step 1: Cut the Fabric
Start by cutting your fabric into two large rectangles that measure 60 inches by 30 inches each. These will be the front and back panels of your vest.
Step 2: Fold the Fabric
Next, fold each rectangle in half lengthwise so that the shorter edges meet. This will create a crease down the center of each panel.
Step 3: Cut the Armholes
On each folded panel, measure 9 inches from the top edge and make a mark. Then, measure 4 inches from the bottom edge and make another mark. Use your scissors to cut along the crease from the top mark to the bottom mark, creating a curved armhole shape. Repeat this step on the other panel.
Step 4: Pin the Panels
Unfold the two panels and lay them on top of each other with the right sides facing each other. Pin the two panels together along the side and bottom edges.
Step 5: Sew the Panels Together
Using your sewing machine, sew the two panels together along the pinned edges, leaving the armholes open. Then, turn the vest
right side out.
Step 6: Add the Star Design
To create the star design on the back of the vest, use a star stencil or draw the design freehand onto a piece of paper. Cut out the star shape and trace it onto the back of the vest with a fabric pen or chalk. Then, use a sewing machine to sew along the traced lines, creating the star design
Step 7: Finish the Edges
Using a zigzag stitch
, sew around the edges of the vest to finish them and prevent fraying.
Step 8: Try It On
Try on your new star model vest
and adjust the fit as needed by trimming the armholes or sewing in additional seams. Enjoy your new stylish and unique addition to your wardrobe!

that’s sure to turn heads. Whether you’re looking to add some personality to your everyday wardrobe or create a statement piece for a special occasion, this vest is a great choice. So why not give it a try and see how creative you can be?
